Our ongoing personal edification series takes on Africa today. Hardly 2 adults in ten can name more than 5 countries in Africa. Locate them on a map? As if. That's how an international news organization broadcast a completely bogus map and no one batted an eye. We hadn't a clue.
This map is more representative of modern Africa.
What concerns us today is size. Just how large is the place?
Enlarge the photo. Now, do it again.
thanks to Joan for the first map.
